Innovative Field Trials for Canadian Farmers 

Climate FieldView helps farmers make data driven decisions to maximize returns on each acre. We understand that every farm is not only different, but also that every field is unique. Climate FieldView brings digital innovation to farmers by seamlessly collecting, storing, and visualizing data to monitor and measure the impact of your agronomic decisions on crop performance in real time. This powerful digital tool manages field variability by building customized fertility and seeding plans for your fields to optimize both yield and profit.

With innovative technology changing the game, it’s never been easier to learn how to make the most of your fields. On-farm field trials are the key to harnessing the full potential of your fields to prepare for current and future growing seasons. Modern day on-farm field tests are virtually unrecognizable from those of the past. Rather than spending endless time and effort placing flags and hand-scrawling notes just to see how two potential field scenarios stack up against one another, Climate FieldView’s on-farming testing is incredibly simple and easy to use.  

Build on Success, Season over Season 

We all know change doesn’t come easy but using FieldView to evolve your on-farm variety trials is an exception to that rule. From an initial setup to obtaining a detailed analysis, it’s simple to conduct multiple tests at once to learn how inputs are performing in different areas and environments. Best of all, rather than making decisions based on results from someone else’s trials across the province, the data you collect is specific to your fields. 

Even on an individual farm level, FieldView helps to establish trends and precedents that can help you navigate the challenges of a difficult year. This is more important than ever, given the increasing unpredictability of the weather. By gathering data each season, you can build cumulative insights into how to mitigate challenging weather and even make evolving conditions work in your favour. 

Bringing the Team Together

You can do it alone, but conducting on-farm field trials can also involve a wider, off-farm team, with your agronomist or seed dealer weighing in. For many farmers, collaborating with a digital tool is indispensable. Instead of just sitting across the table sliding paper back and forth, you can keep track of everything on an iPad® or mobile device and know exactly what’s been done—and what needs to be done, gaining ideas and input along the way. 

Focus on the Bigger Picture

There is nothing that can replace the knowledge you’ve built working your fields over the years, yet often, our assumptions can hold us back. This is especially true when it comes to using yield analysis to perform farm field trials. Many farmers have found valuable solutions in unexpected, sometimes counterintuitive places. 

Ultimately, FieldView’s yield analysis will make running farm field tests an intuitive process for you. But for the platform to do the work it’s important to keep your field boundaries current and up to date. Don’t forget to upload any historical field data you have, and ensure that all your equipment is synced.

On-farm field trials using Climate FieldView will help you determine what’s profitable. That doesn’t always mean pushing for the highest yields of a certain crop that may have proven a good bet in previous seasons but rather finding what works right for your farm. By balancing the expense and potential of each input, FieldView helps you see if an input approach is worth it. This cost/benefit analysis goes a long way to accomplishing more on your farm, while using less. And isn’t that what the game is all about? 

Every farm has different challenges and opportunities, FieldView lets you harness the power of your farm’s data to optimize yield and maximize your return on investment so you can make the most of every acre.
